3 Wise Men - Veterans Day - 11/11/2015

We will be hosting the 3 Wise Men on November 11, 2015.

We’ve recently signed up as an affiliate participating in the Three Wise Men Foundation Veterans Day Tribute. We are encouraging all of our members to sign up to complete the workout at our location on Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11th.

You can sign up here

The Three Wise Men Foundation was founded in honor of the Wise brothers - Jeremy Wise, Ben Wise, and Beau Wise. Jeremy Wise left medical school after the September 11th attacks on our country and became a Navy SEAL.  Ben Wise was a member of the legendary Green Berets in the Army.  And Beau Wise finished the group strong by joining the Marine Corps infantry where he remains on active duty.

 Sadly, Jeremy was killed on December 30, 2009 by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.  This tragedy was compounded just over two years later when Ben was killed in action in Afghanistan.  Jeremy and Ben represent the generation of veterans who gave that “last full measure of devotion”.  Beau Wise represents the generation of veterans who survived combat and who we now stand with to help them survive the peace.  The Three Wise Men foundation exists to raise awareness of the problems our veterans face and raise funds that provide needed transition programs to ensure our veterans have the services they need to transition when their time in the military is over.

 What better way to support them, than by registering to complete the Three Wise Men Veterans Day WOD?
